October 11th is coming soon!!

Did you know that there are TWO big events coming to your Andover Public Library in less than four weeks?  Saturday, October 11th is the date to circle on your calendar for library visiting!  

From 10:30-11:30 on the morning of the 11th, we're celebrating Star Wars Reads Day III.  There'll be stories, crafts, giveaways, and costumed characters from "Star Wars" here at the library!  Be sure to bring your camera and your favorite young fan of the "Star Wars" galaxy, as we expect this will be a fun time.

On that same day, from 10AM 'til 3PM, the Andover Friends of the Library will host a Book & Bake Sale for the first time in almost 10 years!  Funds raised from sales that day will go toward a project to refurbish the Children's Room downstairs, so we sure hope you can stop by and take home an item or two.  In addition to books and baked goods, we're planning to have some brand-new Andover PL book bags AND even a few copies of the 2015 Book Lover's Calendar available for purchase, so be sure to get to the sale if you'd like to pick up a copy or two!  

At this time, we're still taking donations of your gently-used books and DVDs and CDs for our sale.  If you have some items to donate, by all means, please bring 'em to the library during our open hours.  (Please don't ever consider leaving books outside the library when we are not open). We ask that you bring your donations for the sale to the library by Wednesday, October 8th so that we'll have time to sort things and get them ready for Saturday's sale.  Thanks!

Friends President Janice Bazzani will be looking for volunteers to bake and/or work a couple of hours at the book sale on October 11th.  If you are interested, kindly let us know, and we'll pass the word to Janice.  

Let's make this sale a tremendous success, shall we?
